As a disciple of Jesus Christ and a scholar of the New Testament, the goal is to speak the truth of Scriptures through human beings into the human context. As a teacher of the New Testament, the calling is to pass on to others not only respect for the Scriptures but also solid linguistic and exegetical tools for reading and interpreting the Scriptures faithfully within the life of the church.
